Porsche Club of America – San Diego Region welcomes you!
Join us as we head to back Southern California's newest track for the second of two great weekends in 2016: Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, Saturday & Sunday, October 15 & 16, running clockwise. October is an awesome time of year to be in the low desert, and since we haven't had an event for nearly six long months we expect a quick sellout. Be sure to carefully read everything on both this page and the next before signing up so that you aren't shut out!
This event features both a Driver's Ed (DE) and a Time Trial (TT), with separate run groups for each event and differing entrant requirements (DE events have no driving prerequisites; see Prior Experience section on the following page). Time Trials, which have driving prerequisites, work like a Driver's Ed event during practice, but feature Transponder timing during all sessions with times posted online and optionally sent to your mobile phone immediately thereafter, as well as available in the Club's permanent record database at the conclusion of the event (no timing for DE run groups though in-car timers are currently permitted except for novices). Due to very high demand, all participants signing up after September 4 are being initially Waitlisted. Sign up when registration first opens to avoid this uncertainty in the future. There may be space in some groups for credentialed drivers, and we do expect movement in the Waitlist as participants are vetted, cancellations occur, etc. If you are interested in participating, thoroughly read this information page and the next, follow all instructions, then carefully fill out the registration form on the third page. Your card will not be charged now (though the number will be collected) and you will be informed via e-mail if a spot becomes available for you. Please be prepared to respond within 24 hours (8 hours the week of the event) or the next person on the Waitlist will be contacted instead. Run groups are allocated based upon supply and demand. All spots are allocated first come, first served (subject to Season Pass priority). If you sign up and a spot does not become available for you, you will not be charged. Thus, if you are interested in participating, especially as a novice DE or experienced TT Student, indicate your interest by signing up ASAP.
Only two day registration is available for this event, though you may attend only one of the two days if you wish (DE participants must attend the Saturday morning classroom session at the track and thus, if only choosing to drive one of the two days, must drive on Saturday). The base price for this event (assumes early registration, no need to rent anything, etc.) is $270 for the weekend. Track time per entrant is expected to be approximately 3 hours, and traffic is anticipated to be low so everyone should be able to get tons of flying laps. Our $/hour ratio is among the lowest of any group, especially when you factor in the quality aspect. See the Payment section below for more info.
To register we require that you join the PCA - San Diego group here on MotorsportReg.com (note: this just means adding PCA - San Diego to your list of Clubs on MotorsportReg; it does not make you a member of PCA). Regardless of which region of PCA you belong to or if you don't belong to PCA at all, you must join the SDR group on this web site (again, doing so will not make you a member of PCA). This will be done as a step in the registration process. Non-Porsches that meet our rules are welcome!!!
Physical Damage Insurance: Insurance for your car is available for this event via Lockton Affinity, LLC, PCA's exclusively endorsed insurance provider. Note that liability coverage is not included and Time Trial Timed Runs now appear to be insurable for an additional charge. This insurance is strictly optional. Be sure to read all the fine print. For more info click here and search for Chuckwalla October 15-16.
Lap Times and Event Info on your Mobile Phone: You may sign up for our mobile phone timing and notification system as part of your registration for this event. For a Standard subscription (lap times for your car, notifications of postings for your run group, and important announcements), simply check the box that says you do not want a Custom subscription. Even if you do not wish to take advantage of this service, you MUST have your mobile phone number on file with MotorsportReg in the Mobile/Cell field. Having your mobile number in any other field while leaving the Mobile/Cell field blank amounts to not having your mobile number in the system. Your registration is not valid until this has been completed and others registering after you will be prioritized ahead of you. To check or input this, sign in, then click the “My Account” tab in the Dashboard, then click “Edit profile”, then click “Edit My Information”. Enter your mobile phone number into the field titled “Mobile/Cell” – even if you already have it in other fields – then click “Save My Information”.
Event Hotel: Due to the Desert Trip Festival (aka “Oldchella”) that weekend in Indio, our usual event hotel is sold out. Your next best hotel option is Blyte, CA, on the beautiful Colorado River, which is a quick 45 minutes east of the track. Click here for a list: Blythe hotels.
Camping at the Track: You may camp at the track. Please phone Chuckwalla Valley Raceway to make arrangements. There may be fees payable to the track in order to camp.
RV rentals: If interested in an RV rental, try Class A Motorhome Rentals, El Monte RV, or Go RVing.
Late Registration: You must register with credit card on file by 11:59 pm September 30 to receive the discounted online rate; after that a $50 late fee applies through October 9. Online registration closes at 11:59 pm October 9, after which even higher on-site registration fees apply (though space is unlikely to be available at that time).
Payment: You MUST use a credit card to pay if registering online, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and now AMEX. For complete event pricing details proceed with registration steps. You will have a chance to confirm (or abort) after you make your selections. Card billed AFTER the event.
Cancellation Fee: There are potential fees associated with cancelling after various dates. Please see the full cancellation policy at the bottom of the next page.
